Government of Kyrgyzstan High-Voltage Transmission Line

We represent the national electric transmission company of Kyrgyzstan in negotiating all project documents related to the development of the Central Asia-South Asia (CASA-1000) Transmission Project, a 1300 MW transmission line to enable the sale of excess summer hydropower from the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan to Afghanistan and Pakistan. The $1.3 billion project, to be financed by the World Bank and other multilateral institutions, involves construction of three DC/AC converters, over 750 km of HVDC lines and 477 km of HVAC lines. The project achieved financial close in April 2015 and construction is scheduled to start in 2016.
